In my honest opinion, meal prepping is the best way to help your future self make better nutritional choices. By planning ahead, and minimising the work involved in cooking during the week, you make it so much easier for yourself to grab healthy meals and snacks rather than the processed alternatives. As a uni student, I find meal prepping is essential for monitoring my budgeting, and also ensuring that I’m continuously fuelled with great food on the go. This week, I give you an insight into my typical meal prep process including how I choose, budget and prepare my meals for the week!

We all feel limited by the number of hours in a day. Quite often, the hours fly by and we forget how we spent them so quickly. I understand how frustrating it can feel for the end of the day to roll around and you only feel like you’ve got half of what you were aiming to do done.
This blog post is a step-by-step guide on how to schedule and plan your day more effectively so you can get more done and spend more time doing what you love!
Admiration is an invitation. An invitation to call upon yourself and enhance the qualities in you, which you admire in others.
Let's transform our jealousy towards others into positive admiration that allows us to actually improve ourselves rather than tear ourselves down with this simple exercise. Grab a pen, a piece of paper and let's get this mindset shift into gear.
It’s easy to set goals and design habits. What isn’t easy, is choosing them, enforcing them and actually reaping the results. So many people fail to get their goals even started, often that’s because they’ve only made them out of guilt, or because they think they have too.
We have so many things yelling at us, telling us how to live our lives, what weight we should be, what we should eat, how we should raise our children. It’s confusing to have to take it all in, process it and figure out which ideas we want to stick.
This blog post is the perfect place to start if you're wanting to clarify what you truly want, and outline exactly how you're going to get there.
As one of my main goals for January, introducing homemade cleaning products to our household is a step in the right direction, reducing the waste we consume, produce and the nasties we allow into our home. Being a burden both physically and financially, store-bought cleaners with a long list of unknown ingredients have always worried me. Keeping your home clean should be a rewarding and encouraging process, as finding motivation to get the cleaning supplies out can be half the issue. I've also added a great printable with daily, weekly and monthly tasks to break everything down!
Hi there! Thanks for checking out the Live Lively blog. I am so excited to share my passion for productivity, personal growth and wellbeing!
